In brief: It can be a symptom

Depression is often associated with temporarily decreased ability to think, concentrate, or make decisions.
Some depressed patients will mention these thinking difficulties first during initial evaluation. With effective treatment these cognitive symptoms resolve along with the depressed mood.
